3. CJ Henderson, Florida cornerback

Wide receiver isn’t the only position the Broncos might address in Round 1. If the team doesn’t select a new weapon for Lock, they could easily look to strengthen their options at cornerback.

Trading for Bouye was a great move for Denver, but he’s really only going to serve as a replacement for Chris Harris. That leaves the Broncos open to the idea of selecting an upgrade over Bryce Callahan on the other boundary.

Henderson is widely considered to be the No. 2 corner in this class behind projected top-5 selection Jeff Okudah. His athleticism really stood out during his time at Florida. He may never rack up a ton of interceptions, but he possesses an above-average ability to knock the ball away by getting his body into good positions after the pass is thrown.

Henderson is a prospect that will probably be on the board when Denver goes on the clock at No. 15. If the Broncos aren’t in love with any of the wide receivers on the board at that spot, it may cause them to go with the talented cornerback instead.
